A barge is a flat-bottomed boat used primarily for transportation of dry and liquid- bulk cargo through inland waterways. Its carrying capacity is greater in comparison to rail cars, trucks, and semi-trailers, thus making it a more cost-effective mode of transportation. Primarily, barges are non-mechanical in nature and are usually propelled with the help of a towboat or other vessels, but in recent times the market has witnessed a trend of using self-propelled barges.
